Wool Sales.

Southland .is essentially a woolgrowing district, and for the past few weeks wool has been arriving in town by train, waggon, and steamer, consigned to the various firms doing business. The National Mortgage and Agency Co.’s new store is a picture, being loaded from one end to the other with bales of fleece, a standing monument to the woolgrowing propensities of this, district. The Mortgage Co. top the list with 2000 bales, closely followed by Messrs Wright, Stephenson and Co. The buyers attended in force, and are delighted to see so much wool forward. Southland Farmers’ Co-operative Association were fortunate in having the extensive additions to their store completed, and buyers have expressed satisfaction with the manner in which that veteran storeman Mr Ja«. has displayed the clips. The following is a list of wool entered by the respective firms :—N.M. and A. Co., 2335 bales ; Wright, Stephenson and Co., 2019 ; N.Z. Loan Co., 1084 ; Southland Farmers’ Co-j Operative Association, 731 ; J.E. Wats;pn and Co., 680 ; J. G. Ward and Co.. 652 ; Henderson and Batgor, 602 ; J. R. Mills and Son, 303 ; Dalgety and Co., 389, and G. Froggatt 86. On Friday a large number of runholders, sheep-farmers, and stockowners were in town waiting for the sales, which took place in Victoria Hall. The attendance was large and bidding keen, and the sale promises to be a very good one. Values were well maintained, as high as Is per pound being obtained when we went to press.
